My company is using FortiClient (installed before my time here) and I HATE it. I want to give some recommendations to my boss who is the IT Director. I seem to be going towards Kaspersky but wondered what other's feel is good / great.

What do you think your boss wants of an AV product?
And why are you going towards Kaspersky?

I'm asking because selecting an AV for a server is very different than selecting an AV for a home user.

How many servers do you have? Do you need centralized management of the AV?
Are these "real" servers, or do people also log on to them and use them as a workstation?
Are the servers mission critical?

These are some questions you should ask yourself.

I would also suggest looking at solutions from ESET.
